Beautiful

Beautiful and historical. We walked on our own, but we wish we had booked a tour so we could learn the history of it. There were many people there. There is a bathroom and some vendors. It was 70 soles per person.

Leaves you in awe
Sep 2021
It is an impressive place. If you read a bit of the histoy of the place it is still hard to imagine what it was in its hayday seeing as even the ruins are great. The Inca craftsmanship is on full display and its breathtaking.
The ticket is abit expensive, but it is well worth it.

Historic and Breathtaking

Fascinating rock walls built by Inca people just outside of Cusco. Tour guides are available at the entrance, but you can do a self-guided tour as well. There is a breathtaking view of Cusco as well from this high vantage point.

Impressive site

The site of Sacsayhuaman in Peru was amazing place, we visit the Inca ruins and it was impressive place to explore. You should go when you travel to Cusco.

Not worth it unless it's the only Incan site you will see
Sep 2021
Bottom line-if you are going to Machu Picchu, don't bother going to Sacsayhuaman.
If you do go-
-There are NO maps/printed information which explains the site, so HIRE A GUIDE (don't worry about finding one-they will find you as soon as you pay your admission fee).
-You must purchase either the Boleto Turistica del Cusco or the Partial Tourist Ticket to enter. You can't just pay to get into the Sacsayhuaman site. So, plan on visiting the other sites on your ticket-within the allotted time required on the ticket.
IF I WERE TO DO THIS AGAIN, I would have taken a taxi to the Cristo Blanco site-which has an amazing view of the city of Cusco, and then walked down to Cusco on the walking path. Then we would have not wasted the 140 soles (70 each) we spent in admission fees.

This is a beautiful park with lovely ground and a lot of history. There is even a roving pack of llama.

Well worth a visit while in Cusco

Classic city tour.

Stone constructions in the mountains, many of these stones are huge, imagining how they were able to transport it to this place is a real feat, according to the locals here in June there is a festival in honor of the sun god.

Good Place to be Around

This was an interesting place and we are so glad that we had some time to visit it. Very easy to walk or take a taxi until the site.
